When to Harvest Garden Huckleberries - Knowledgebase Question

I've read a few tips on when to pick garden huckleberries.
Late fall seems to be the time. My plants were seedlings
and planted outdoors in early June. Should I wait until October to pick or a heavy frost?

Garden huckleberries are not edible until shiny black and soft. Pick them as soon as they reach this stage, so you don't lose them to frost. Good luck!
